I've just installed a fresh copy of Windows XP Professional on my EEE PC 1000H, configured everything drivers/patches etc. and noticed the killer bootup time is now gone!
So I was wondering wether XP Pro loads slower than XP Home or is it some black magic optimization inside the machine that made booting to XP Home faster? I guess this because some Asus drivers won't install without a proper patch.
I've tried disabling all the unnecessary services, removed components like IIS and networking tools and whatnot to no avail...
Can someone enlighten me?
